Eating is the first ongoing interaction in our relationship with another human being. Whether we are breast or bottle feed, we all have another human being who must deal with our need for nourishment from the very start. So eating is about need, nourishment, pleasure, feelings, but most of all is about our relationship with other human beings. More precisely it is about how we respond to our feelings about our relationship with other human beings. The Real Solution Binge/Compulsive Eating Workbook Revised Edition is the result of over twenty years of conversation with extraordinary people. The Workbook offers practical and useful skills and concepts leading to breaking the "binge state."

As a Binge/Compulsive Eater your eating behaviors "work" for you in a variety of ways. Eating serves as an antidote to the feelings of self-hate, guilt, stress, anxiety, boredom, depression, anger, and so on. Thus, it is important that you understand the function of food behavior in your life, and the need to develop new skills and abilities in order to be able to give up bingeing as a coping mechanism.
You are not crazy or stupid, but you have an eating problem. You have an eating problem because, on some level, it works for you - by reducing tension and anxiety, extinguishing feelings you can't stand (including the offshoots of shame, self-hatred, depression, boredom, anger, and anxiety), getting you much-needed attention, removing you from an uncomfortable situation, and by bingeing you can temporarily avoid feeling chaotic or out-of-control.
Therefore, let's not treat this syndrome as though it was some disgusting thing to be gotten rid of. You will need to develop new skills and abilities that will enable you to solve the problems you're now using your Binge/Compulsive Eating to address. And this will take time. Don't try to give up your symptoms immediately. Remember that you are entitled to the time it takes you to recover.About the Author:
